Silly quote

“The silly Marxist doctrine of the antagonism of Capital and Labour must be packed up and buried in the grave of its foolish inventor. Capital and Labour are not mutually antagonistic.”—Daily Express, 18/5/26.

No, no; of course not! Why all this silly bother, this needless exhibition of force and strife? They love one another, adore each other. Certainly “they” shall have all the wealth and the leisure, and “we” shall have all the work and subsistence wages. Then “us” shall live happy ever after—perhaps.


(Socialist Standard, August 1926)
